I don't know why the reviews are all so bad. Maybe cause the show is being reviewed by people past their prime. Either way, I enjoyed it. It was awesome to see Kelly and Nat again. I love the clothes and the music.
I think that the show is refreshing and I am definitely going to keep watching. It would be so great if they continue to bring people from the old show back. I really hope that Tori Spelling decides to come back to the show. Anyone who liked the old series, Gossip Girl, the OC, will like this show for sure.
The show is amazing. My new favorite show. The charters are great. I love Silver she is a good character and she is really edgy. I love how she dresses. The grandma is awsome and i hope she is on more. She adds humor to the show. I like that. I watched the origanal when it was on and i loved it. I was hoping this one would live up to the hype and it did! All i know is that i will be watching it every week. And if you r not watching it u r missing out. I recomend it to any teenager!
This series is defently a new light on tv. When i saw the two pilot episodes, i really like it. The series has its twists and drama like the old series but i liked this much more beacuse this one is modern with great characters. I think that you see a bigger picture when you look at the episodes, you can directly see whats what. If the serie continues to be this good its going to be hard to stand in its way so i think everyone should give it a chance with a open mind. thank you
So it's time for a new version of an great old serie. And what do they do? They turn it into an ugly, childish B movie type of serie. Why? Did they think they can live on the old one and just do whatever? It sure feels like that when you watch this first episode.
There are so many great series today, why did they screw this one up?
Well maybe I need to live in the US to like this new version more, I dunno.. but I do know that I'm not going to follow this one.
...and that's where it gets interesting! Since I first learned about 90210 from BRAVO-magazine (sorry it's the German standard for kids to learn about things they shounldn't), I was pretty much hooked to the whole Beverly Hills thing. I enjoyed watching those awesome kids do their awesome stuff with their tons of money. All things that couldn't be further from my reality. I was an average wealthy kid with average cloth doing average things. Nothings special at all. So when I heard there was a follow-up on 90210 I couldn't but watch the damn thing that sprung from the show pretty much got me interested in girls (I had a huge crush on Kelly), clothes and parties and I must say...didn't knock me over! But then again I'm not a teenager anymore, I have a life now and in this life I've seen a million shows just like it. On the pro side: It's not bad at all. The story is linked but not copied, the protagonists are attractive at first sight (it took me about 3 seasons to halfway like Steve and Andrea) and it brings some memories back. On the Contra side: It has no potential whatsoever to be as legendary as 90210 was in the 90ies. So by my logic that means: Watch it, if you're a real fan of that kinda shows (not only 90210 but all the others in between as well) and kind your hands of it, if you're looking to replace the deep gap Kelly, Dylan and co left 8 yrs ago! Best wishes to everyone, FF
I was a huge fan of the original 90210, i am now 35 and when i found out they were making this i was, well, beyond excited.
Im still that teenager at heart, i think we all are and the chance to go back and see some of our favourite characters from the past you just cant pass up.
I know a lot of people didnt like this but omg i loved it.
for the pilot i think it was excellent, i mean do any of you even remember the original 90210 pilot at all ??
It was terrible, cheesey, and badly written but you fell in love with the charaters just like your gonna fall in love with these ones.
You have to give this show a chance, yes there are many characters, yes there are many plots but this is prime time tv people, its complicated and fascinating and will kepp me tuned in every single week.
Just as a reference point LOST anyone ? most complicated show in history but also one of the most popular shows ever made !!!!
Anyway here is my take on some of the characters....
I absolutely loved Ethan, he is the popular boy with the sensitive heart thats tough on the outside but just desperately wants someone to see him.
Naomi, the superb***h who is underrated i think, nobody has any expectations of her and thinks she is stupid but i think that will be what spurs her on to prove to everyone she isnt dumb and she will end up at yale mark my words.
Dixon - Loved him, how cute is that boy, super super cute can totally see him and silver hooking up . Silver - i love her, she looks a bit like megan fox i think, very sultry, sexy but totally messed up. I think dixon can be the boy that turns her around, i think if he gives her his heart it will give her peace.
Navid - that boy is SEXY, i love love love love him, if i was a teenager i would definitely be dating him, smart, a geek, but gorgeous..
Annie and Ty, brenda and dylan anyone ? New girl, richest boy in school!! I love it, ty is cute, rich, popular, and extremely sweet, but ethan is already in love with annie so thats gonna be an intersting triangle i think.
Ryan matthews - how old is he supposed to be because that man is hot hot hot hot, i can see a potential student teacher relationship going on with him and naomi tho, however i loved the way he looks at kelly, very cute...
Debbie and Harrison - cute couple, he the rich kid wanting a normal life, she the farm girl, i like it, debbie seems like a really cool mom to have, i just hope they dont try and turn her into cindy, i like the fact that she has her own career, i think harrison is gorgeous and i think he plays the principle very well..
Kelly Taylor - how good is it to see kelly back, i really really hope that the writers dont give her some major crap like she had last time, i love the fact that she has a son but i just hope it isnt dylans, that storyline was just so tiring, its like they only went back to each other because they didnt have anyone else. Id like to see someone fresh and new be sammys dad.
Brenda, not much screen time but COME ON - i loved her, i was really mad she left the original series in fact i was so mad i actually stopped watching the show alltogether.
I have just started buying the show on dvd to catch up and am currently awaiting season 4.
I hope brenda stays, i think she would make a great drama teacher although i was a bit confused as to why she was bought in to direct the play as there seemed to be a director already there, its like they were in such a rush to bring brenda back they didnt think of the reason she was there in the 1st place.
I was however confused about 1 thing.
1. Hannah Zuckerman Vasquez
Andrea didnt have hannah until 1994 which would make hannah 14 and im pretty sure she wouldnt be at west beverly at 14 unless you guys changed the rules im sure she would of been at junior high, am i wrong in that assumption ???
Anyway on the whole i gave it an 8.5 i do think it has the capacity to be great i just think we need to give it a chance.
"90210" does a great job at bringing back the world of rich teens with issues from california that live in a very famous zip code.The show also brings in some past nostalgia from the famous older brother "Beverly Hills,90210".
Definitely will be a good show to watch evolve into something of it's own. The inclusion of Jenny Garth and Shannen Doherty is great and makes it feel like you just found a brand new pair of jeans you used to love growing up. The show is showrunned by the creators of Freaks and Geeks and Life as we know it, so im sure once it's done with it's "pilot" phase it will develop everyone and cut it down to the essentials much like the original did all those years ago. I look forward to being back in 90210.
All I can say is so far, so good. The show has an enormous amount of potential to be great. The new characters pique your interest, while veteran actors Rob Estes, Jennie Garth, et. al. appeal to original fans. It was great to see a new look on an old show. The entire idea seemed silly at first but they pulled it off fairly well. It was great to see Shannon Doherty and Jennie Garth on screen again, even though it isn't going to last. It is a great way to hook in fans of Beverly Hills 90210, while trying to hook in a younger audience. The premier show was great, now if they can only keep it going...
The show started out boring and made me sleepy at times but the drama started to pick up and Kelly and Brenda made it more interesting.So my overall percentage of me continuing to follow the show is 50% based on that the new characters are interesting and Ethan is a cutie and if and only if the show producers can get more of the old character's back because I do want to know what they would of went on to do if the show stayed on longer.Now as for the conflicts and Drama I see abrupting on the show with the new characters seems abit old news because what more can you add to an already filled teen drama tv so I know things the producers come up with are going to be very predictable and something I already seen so that's my only concern. So the new 90210 is Decent.
I did not like the cursing in the show. these are teenagers not adults speaking like that. i am not fond of the cursing teenagers. i felt like not much emphasis was on the family that moved in. i did like silver. she was great. i am glad some of the people from the old 90210 will be part of the show. i am sure it will get better just like the old 90210 got better. i also did not like the part about the ethan and the girl in the car making out. i want the show to be pure at first then all the things that go along with teenagers come into the show. i liked it but a few things that i mentioned i hope will change.
The season starts off with Annie, Dixon and their family move to Beverly Hills from Kansas to take care of their elderly grandmother. They soon realize that Beverly Hills is a whole new world with a different rules.
90210 what can i say about it. Back when the original Beverly Hills 90210 was on, i was young and I wasn't interested. But as I grew up, I soon realized that the show was iconic and wonderful. When I heard that a remake was being done, I thought TV was hitting the bottom of the the creative barrel. But after watching it tonight, I could see great potential for a new classic. You can't remake a classic, but you can make it a classic for the new generation. Annie and Dixon are not exactly Brandon and Brenda but close with some work. The parents have potential and having the Mother from Arrested Development as their grandmother was genius. The Beverly Hills kids are good and can't wait to see them lure the newbies astray. But the best was having Kelly and Brenda back. I hope that the two Alumni will stay for the duration of the season. But I will definitely be tuning into next week episode
